Der Schneemann [The Snowman] is a German cartoon from 1944, co-written by cartoonist Horst von Möllendorff and directed by Hans Fischerkoesen. It’s a story about a bee that finds an abandoned phonograph in a meadow and uses her stinger as a stylus to play a record.
Color has partly faded. The print has a reddish/brownish cast. Still, some other color is present: yellows, grays, bright reds and some pale blues.
Sound is music and sound effects, mostly. There is no dialog, but one or two songs are in German.
This is the complete cartoon, which has a length of about 70m/230ft. A very rare print which is much sought-after.
